VELOX Series – The new VELOX UHD cables, the first-to-market cable line to combine evolutionary design and engineering techniques to support the new generation of HD, Ultra-HD and 4K video applications up to 12 meters. Cables deliver a verified 18 Gbps HD signal for high resolutions, frame rates and colors over HD digital interconnects.
VELOX Passive Premium HDMI Cable Series - A Newly designed HDMI transmission cable with advanced features in metallurgy, topology, dielectric and shielding. This new microwave RF design allows for up to 4dB less insertion loss over long distances by establishing a near linear response performance increase specifically for HDMI’s TMDS High Speed Signaling. No speed cap from integrated electronics as compared to active cables. Offers the highest bandwidth performance of any passive cable available.
VELOX Fiber System Series - The new Velox Fiber System answers the long distance 18 Gbps transmission question Loud and Clear. Unlike installing with other Fiber products that are currently available, there is no need for the integrator to worry about “whether or not” the system is going to work. In order to assure the most reliable and robust Fiber system available to the integrator, Metra Home Theater has taken a close look at all of the Fiber products out there and we have determined what it takes to not only carry the full 18Gbps of bandwidth, but to also ensure compatibility between source and display.
